Zeppelin Universität fully embraces international education. Solid and reliable partnerships with some 75 universities from all over the world constitute an integral component of the university’s mission. Among these partners are ERASMUS partners such as Copenhagen Business School, Maastricht University, Gent University, Université Bordeaux, IAE Lyon Business School, and Universidad de Salamanca.
In the Americas Zeppelin Universität cooperates closely with Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey, California State University, Chico, and Quest University, British Columbia, Tec de Monterrey, Mexico, and Universidad de los Andes, Colombia. Among ZU’s Asian partners are Limkokwing University, Malaysia, Peking University, and Tongji University, Shanghai. Partner universities in the Oceanic area are Griffith University, Australia, and the University of Tasmania.
Zeppelin Universität considers internationalization a main strategic goal. Internationalization is an ongoing process which has several dimensions: a cultural dimension which requires an unbiased openness towards other cultures, a personnel dimension since the university staff must be willing to accept and support an ongoing internationalization process, and an institutional dimension which includes an internationally compatible academic calendar, a good level of bilingualism, fair and easy credit transfer for students, and the development of new international study programs.
The Zeppelin Universität International Office (IO) is responsible for the establishment and management of these and other global activities. It provides advice and support to incoming and outgoing students and coordinates the international exchange between partner universities for students as well as for ZU’s teaching and administrative staff.
